Who’s Disgusting?

The Celtics are, that’s who.

“It’s Raining Men (who are married to each other)!”

“A Gaythering Storm”

I am glad the ridiculous original anti-gay marriage add got this much attention. Frank Rich has a good piece about it here.


The Force has told me good things…

I know it’s unlike me to promote religious doctrines but come on who doesn’t want to sign up for this? Awesome.


Egyptian T-shirts

April 17, 2009

My roommates and I just love the colorful t-shirts we sometimes see people wearing here in Egypt. We just spotted someone in the Sadat metro station wearing a shirt that said “2 Times Sex a Day Keeps the Doctor Away!”

Other notable t-shirt quotes include “Orgasm donor” and my personal favorite, worn buy a muhajiba girl at AUC, “I’m the one you have to blow to get a drink in this place.”

More to come inshallah.


Long Live KG

April 16, 2009

We should all be rooting for KG to make a quick recovery so he doesn’t have to watch the games from the locker room. KG is THE man.

Garnett chooses to watch games from the locker room rather than the bench when he is injured because it frustrates him to not be able to contribute.

That’s heart. Go Celts.


A Decline in Jihadist Violence?

April 16, 2009

Here is an interesting piece by Nathan Field in The National:”Across the Arab and Muslim world, jihadists are beginning to renounce violence as a means to change their societies – and not just because they lost.”

I think he makes a good point here, but would point out that in Somalia it seems the trend is moving in the opposite direction. However, I think that an examination of that case would require an analysis by an expert on Somalia, which I am not.
